    As an immediate action, Tasracing is confirming its legal powers, separate to the Office of Racing Integrity (ORI), to address allegations raised against a number of licensed persons named in the report. Further information about this will be released prior to the Friday night harness race meeting scheduled for Launceston.

    Could R7 at Launceston become a 1 horse race?

    I won’t go into my thoughts on the report apart from saying it needs to be read by every participant in the industry.

    I will however applaud those people who spoke out re ABC and then to the investigator. It’s called doing the right thing.They should be proud of themselves.

    It will be good to see what comes of this Kev. It has been around for quite some time now.

    I thought there was a new rule (whatever it is) put in place last year that only allows NO more than half the field can have horses from one stable in it?? Or did I read that wrong.
    But in saying that its an easy fix, horses can go in others names.

    "Reading about the abuse, that's just definitely wrong, and it amazes me that anyone that does that is still allowed to race," Mr Bullock said.

    "It's quite incredible, if you took this to any other jurisdiction, they'd be stood down straight away … there's enough evidence there."

    Harness Racing Victoria is reviewing today’s statement by Tasracing on the Murrihy Report into Tasmanian Harness Racing.

    Tasracing has served formal notices to racing industry participants named in the report of an immediate "warning off" from all venues controlled by Tasracing.

    HRV stewards are deliberating on the matter and will respond in due course.

    HRV CEO Matt Isaacs said the report revealed troubling accounts that were upsetting and had no place in the sport.

    “Harness Racing Victoria is committed to ensuring all participants can compete on a level playing field and that the welfare of its horses and people are its absolute priority,” Isaacs said.
